Let me tell you about some of the things I haven’t had time to mention over the past month.
There was an example of totally irrational and reprehensible behaviour from a local group of people I would confidently have assumed would display far more maturity and judgment.
The Sun Oil factory, within sight from down the road, went up in smoke – in fact, you could see the smoke going up in no uncertain manner!
Our next-door neighbour (until very recently), with whom I was about to enter into a business relationship, turned out to be much in demand – by the police. He has a colourful history of numerous amazing scams and misrepresentations, and at one stage is recorded as having scaled down a drainpipe from a fourth-storey window in order to escape the consequences of his actions. The lad has again slipped away into the woodwork in the nick of time.
I (brag alert) was elected to the Board of an eminent local organisation formed in 1903. I was also appointed as an Honorary Life Member of said organisation – the previous such nomination having occurred some twenty years ago.
I took delivery of a large item which is now filling me with daily delight.
You have, of course, taken note of the date!
My April Fool stunt for the day
Is not to try, in any way,
To offer tales of altitude
To all the gullible, as food.
Those thinking back on past years, who
Have waited for ‘the other shoe’
Will wait in vain to hear it fall –
I have not pulled a prank at all!
Nor, you will note, did bunnies hop
All over this here blogging shop,
For ‘Rabbits’ has not been declared,
The word is totally ‘un-hared’!
There will, thus, be more to follow on these topics!
